Few branches of mathematics have been influential in the social sciences than game theory In recent years, it has become an essential tool for all social scientists studying the strategic behaviour of competing individuals, firms and countries However, the mathematical complexity of game theory is often very intimidating for students who have only a basic understandFew branches of mathematics have been influential in the social sciences than game theory In recent years, it has become an essential tool for all social scientists studying the strategic behaviour of competing individuals, firms and countries However, the mathematical complexity of game theory is often very intimidating for students who have only a basic understanding of mathematics Insights into Game Theory addresses this problem by providing students with an understanding of the key concepts and ideas of game theory without using formal mathematical notation The authors use four very different topics college admission, social justice and majority voting, coalitions and co operative games, and a bankruptcy problem from the Talmud to investigate four areas of game theory The result is a fascinating introduction to the world of game theory and its increasingly important role in the social sciences.

As far as I am concerned, I do not consider this book a proper introduction to Game Theory in so far as it lacks the basic vocabulary or elementary concepts such as players, strategy or Nash-equilibrium.The first chapter is the most interesting in my opinion. It deals with finding the best matching between two groups (e.g. schools-students, men-women) also known as the stable marriage problem. It is well-written, well-paced and introduces the Gale-Shapley algorithm.The second chapter is also int [...]

This is a well-written book in game theory with several real-life examples. The authors prevent to give sophisticated proves for theorems but they have tried to be clear-cut. The two penultimate and last chapters are written amazing. The only weakness of this book could be seen in the second chapter.

This book is that rare thing: a discursive mathematics book which successfully communicates the context of application, while also explicitly teaching the computational skills required with great clarity.

succinct and clear in math.
